Susan is an Atlanta native and a long-time student of DYP. She developed an interest in teaching yoga during her work as Lead Therapist at an outpatient addiction treatment facility. She wanted to be able to offer patients a somatic form of therapy along with traditional psychotherapy. Susan first became certified in Y12SR (Yoga of 12 Step Recovery) in 2016. Shortly thereafter, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in Integrative Flow with Veronica Lewenger. After being inspired during a Yin class at DYP, Susan became certified in Yin Yoga with Amanda Trevelino. She continued her 300-hour certification in Pranakriya Yoga under the instruction of Yoganand Michael Carroll, thereby reaching her 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher certification. By integrating her caring and compassionate nature with her attention to alignment and the body in space, Susan welcomes the beginning student and those wishing to refine their practice. When not teaching, you will most likely see Susan in class at DYP as she has experienced the value of daily practice in her own life, both physically and therapeutically.
